I have had abnormaly large red blood cells for some time, with no good medical reason - So say my Docs. Please comment if you pertenant info ! ## red blood cells are very large ## Extra large red blood cells ## I'm sure it's from their shots never in my life have I has this ## If they are unable to find any medical reason, then there is likely nothing to worry about.

Injectafer facial tingling & mental confusion from activity

I was received a dose of Injectafer over a year ago. The evening after I got it, my lips and tongue felt tingly. That night I went to a friend's house for dinner with my husband. Everyone noticed I seemed a little drunk though we had no alcohol. We thought it was odd but nothing alarming. Since then, my lips and tongue always feel numb/tingle. The more active I am, the more they tingle and it spreads to my entire head. But the biggest problem is everyday physical activities, such as going up stairs can make my brain 'drunk?' I get easily confused, can forget something I just did minutes ago and feel like I'm in a dream state. If I lay around on the couch for a few days, I can get my head back to normal, but that's not doable when you have kids. Has anyone else had sympt

Side effects of Aranesp users

My father-in-law has been taking aranesp shots now for about 7 years for severe anemia. In the last year or so he is continually getting weaker and weaker in the muscle. We have had all kinds of test on his heart, and every test comes back normal. But, he certainly is not normal. I know he is elderly, but at this point has very difficult time walking. We had a physical therapist come to the house for about 6 to 7 weeks, he actually got worse. They told us he has severe muscle attrify? Has anyone else experience this with someone they are caring for and is using Aranesp. Thank You ## My husband has been getting an aranesp injection for some time.

Persistent Side Effects from Injectafer

My first dose was given four days ago and I am still feeling nauseous, muscle pain and cold sweats. Realizing that we're all different, I'm hoping someone's experience with Injectafer is better than mine and can offer some hope that things get better. Compared to my Infed and Venofer infusions this is the worst I've felt afterwards. This is my first try at a forum. Thank you for any advice. ## Those can be normal side effects of such infusions and, unfortunately, they don't always improve or go away. Some people end up with such symptoms for life. You may also experience dizziness, flushing and darkening of the skin at the administration site. Has it improve any, yet? Why were you switched off of the others, were they no longer working? ## I had mine on Friday (it...
